Good day lovely people. I went to write an examination and at the exam venue something caught my attention. Don’t worry I will tell you all about it. Ebunoluwa’s hair is definitely an attention seeker. I will tell you all about it in this post. Don’t go away until you are done reading and send me mail if you think your hair is also an outstanding attention seeker. Email 👉 email@example.com. Now to today’s post;);).
1. Let’s meet you.(who are you, what do you do, what passion do you have and your general attitude towards life.)
I’m Alabi Ebunoluwa, a 200l student of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in University Of Ibadan.
I am a fashion enthusiast, avid reader, fast learner, basically I love to create things hence my passion lies there. So I sew, make beaded accessories amongst other things. And I’m also into digital marketing. And I also make my hair mostly when its all natural weaving. Here’s a picture of something I did for my lil sis. 👇Her lil sis.
2. How did you come about your passion? What drives you? Would you like to share any of your works with us?
Take sewing for instance, I just love it when I make a dress and it fits just as I want it to. Well that’s really the point of creating, it comes out just as you want it to, at least most times if you work hard enough. So basically getting my desired results drives my passion to create. 👇Her sister;).
3. How do people appreciate/react towards your passion? Has your passion brought any change yet in your environment? If yes, what. If otherwise do you have any in mind?
People just go, ‘Really? You made that, that’s really cool oooo’.Well that’s right about the reaction for now.
Now concentrating on your ‘fro. The first time I saw you, it was certainly your hair that caught my attention. By default, I am attracted to afros, so seeing yours so full and beautiful was like see my “prince charming”😆😆. I told myself that moment, “I have to talk to this girl about her hair”. And that was exactly what I did.
4.How long have you been natural?
My hair became 2 years in May. I started growing it right after secondary school.
5. What is/was your inspiration?
Initially, I was really going to let my hair grow and leave it natural because my mum is a chemist (PhD) and she just keeps going on and on about the adverse effect of chemicals blahhhhh blahhhh. I just decided to leave it, like “whatever mehn”.Then platforms like
Instagram really got me into the whole natural hair thing.
6.What is your take on African Natural Hair?
think African natural hair is very versatile. You just have to be ready to work with it.
7. Do you have any regimen or routine you would like to share with us?
All I do to my hair is wash with a shampoo and deep condition sometimes. I don’t use products like that, cause you know, #girlsarenotsmiling😠, no cash o. I just use dark and lovely Leave-in conditioner and shampoo, then my deep conditioner is ‘sofnfree gro healthy’ and that’s about it.
8. What is your favorite hair style?
My favourite hairstyle has to be the high puff, hands down.Protective styling like crochet braids and most times normal weaving could also work.
9. Do you have any Dos and Don’ts for your routine? Does your hair have any addictions or does your hair a TOTAL DISLIKE for any hair products?
I have no dos and donts. I haven’t really tried out products so I don’t know what my hair dislikes yet. But then, it breaks if I leave it undone for a while.
11. Do you have any hair regrets or hair habit you wish to curb?
No hair regrets, the saddest thing though is shrinkage.
11b. Do you face any challenges as a Naturalista?
Basically, its just annoying when random people ask, why my hair isn’t done. Well, “I have no money, lol, and everything is so expensive”. I would rather save my money and subscribe for internet instead. *grins😝 . And old people don’t understand why you would do twist-outs, they call it ‘dada’. It’s really frustrating. Silly face for the haters *grins😜.
12. What are your short term and long term goals?
Well, no short term goals, but long term, I want my hair to grow as long as my sister’s. *smiles:D
13. Do you have anything to say to anyone who ever considers going Natural but needs inspiration?
Do you want to keep your hair natural? Then just do it.
14.Do you have a blog or any social media you would like us to follow you on?
